Psychology & Counselling Degree Guide

Psychology is defined as the understanding of the human mind and its functions. The word itself is a combination of two Greek words: ‘psyche’, which relates to the soul or spirit, and ‘logia’, which refers to the study of something (there you go – some pointless trivia you might be able to crowbar in to an essay at some point). These days psychology is used in a wide range of industries – from the medical profession to HR – in order to gain an understanding of how we think, both collectively and as individuals.
